Flying with kids

What is the baggage allowance for children and babies?

Children (between 2 and 11 years old) will be able to bring the baggage included in their fare. Babies (under 2 years old) who are not traveling with an assigned seat can bring an additional piece of up to 10 kg (22 lb) of checked baggage free of charge, as long as the adult is traveling in fares classic, flex, business, M, L, or XXL. If the adult is traveling in fare basic, light, XS or S, the baby will not be able to bring baggage.

Other items:

  • The diaper bag will count as the personal item of the adult accompanying the infant.
  • You can bring a small baby stroller with a weight of less than 9kg/20lb to the boarding gate free of charge. Our staff will receive it and help you check it in as baggage.
  • You should avoid transporting strollers that weigh more than 9 kg/20 lb and whose dimensions exceed 158 cm/62”, as the size of the baggage compartments are not designed to carry them. If your stroller exceeds the specified weight and dimensions, you will be required to register it at the airport counter, where you will have to pay an additional charge based on its specific characteristics.
  • The use of a car seat on board is permitted for babies (under 2 years old) only on routes to and from the United States (including connections), in compliance with regulations established by the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
  • The car seat must meet the following dimensions: 68 x 35 x 43 cm (height, length, width). If it exceeds these dimensions, it must be registered as checked baggage, subject to additional charges. Please note that it must be approved for use on aircraft, meaning it has the corresponding labels demonstrating its 'certification for motor vehicles and aircraft,' as specified by the FAA.
  • If you bring a car seat along with a stroller, only one of them can be checked at the gate; the other must be checked at the counter.
